Fished with Mike and Ryah today in the ocean for sharks. We had an epic day releasing around 14 sharks. Most were big and three exceeded the 100 pound mark. Mike caught and released several on the fly. We had some epic bites and the sharks put on an epic visual show. The remainder of the fish were caught in bait. We had brown, dusky, spinner, and sandbar sharks today. It was very very good. Pro Tip: Sink rate is crucial for shark flys to be productive. Neutrally buoyant flys are most productive. Too much weight and you won't get bites.
